EDGE Experts Partnership Program
Clients often don’t know that they need EDGE Expert services, or are hesitant to add additional costs to the process. To help add value for EDGE Experts and support the business case for including quality consultancy in all certification projects, we work with EDGE Experts around the world to provide an integrated offering to clients.
EDGE Experts sign a non-exclusive partnership agreement with us, which allows us to subcontract a fixed scope of work on their behalf to clients, which we accommodate from our audit fees. This offer is available to all of our clients and gives EDGE Experts an entry point to negotiate additional consultancy work on a project by project basis.
We also offer additional benefits to EDGE Experts who sign up with us, including exclusive technical and business training webinars, as well as opportunities to bid for consultancy projects that are channeled through our clients and investor partners.
Benefits of becoming an EDGE Experts Partner:

We work with local organisations in key markets that act as the face of EDGE and help drive growth in the market.
